VITAMIN D SUPREME
Vitamin D Supreme provides a clinically useful dose of vitamin D3, 5000 IU per veggie cap, and vitamin K in both K1 and the MK-7 form of K2. This formula contains higher therapeutic doses than Vitamin D Synergy for situations where more aggressive repletion is required. Vitamins D and K are essential for optimal bone and arterial health and for maintaining the immune system in proper balance.** The amount of vitamin D and K in this formula may be beneficial for those who do not get adequate sun exposure and/or dietary sources of these vitamins. Vitamins D and K work as a team. Thus, increasing doses of vitamin D will increase the need for vitamin K.
The Relationship Between Vitamin D and Vitamin K
Vitamins D and K are essential for optimal bone and arterial health and for maintaining a healthy immune system.*
Vitamins D and K work as a team. Increasing the amount of vitamin D via supplementation, in the presence of
insufficient levels of vitamin K, can increase the risk of inappropriate calcium deposition in the soft tissue (such as arteries and joints), and can have a negative effect on blood vessel elasticity. However, when adequate levels of vitamin K are present along with vitamin D, calcium can be properly directed to the necessary areas of the body, mainly in bones and teeth. Increasing vitamin D levels increases the need for vitamin K.
The amount of vitamins D and K in this formula may be beneficial for those who do not get adequate sun
exposure and/or dietary sources of these vitamins.
Vitamin D assists with proper bone health, as it helps regulate the body’s
calcium levels. When calcium levels are low, vitamin D stimulates calcium
absorption and reduces calcium excretion, thereby encouraging healthy
bones and teeth.*
In addition, vitamin D helps to support a proper immune response in the
body. Healthy prostate, colon and breast tissues are also supported by
Both forms of vitamin K are important to our health: Vitamin K1
(phytonadione) is the naturally occurring form, found predominantly in
leafy green vegetables; while vitamin K2 (Menaquinone-7) is a product
of soy fermentation and has the special property of metabolizing slowly
throughout the day. Vitamin K is important for directing the transport of
calcium into bone and teeth for optimal strength.*
